Zak Joins the Policy Scout Podcast to Discuss the Value of a Degree


I joined Kristin Matheny on The Policy Scout podcast this week to discuss the true value of a college degree and what's so messed up about American higher education.

This was a fun podcast where we were able to run through questions like:

  • Why does it seem like a college degree is worth less today than in earlier generations?
  • How did that happen?
  • Is there ever any value in a college degree?
  • What policy questions can we think about in relation to degree inflation?
  • Why do young people go to college?

I address these issues in detail in my 2016 book The End of School. You can pick it up here on Amazon.
